The Unsolved Mystery of JonBenét Ramsey
This murder is dated to the day of 26th of December 1996, just one day after Christmas.
JonBenét Ramsey was an American child beauty queen who was killed at six years old in her house. First, let's dig into the time sequence and what happened that day. The night before JonBenét was found dead, the whole family - consisting of parents Patsy and John Bennett Ramsey and their children, JonBenét and her brother Burke - headed to a family friend's Christmas party. Someone that night called 911. Lot of people think that the call was not an accident and it was intentional. The dispatch picked up, but no one was speaking.
They sent a patrol which showed up at a friend's house, but were convinced to leave, that nothing is up in their house.

The next day, the day when JonBenét was found dead, her mother Patsy woke up early for a trip planned that day. She was entering the kitchen when she noticed a little piece of paper laying on the floor. The note said that they had kidnapped JonBenét and they wanted exactly 118 000 USD for their dauther's safe return. Patsy called the police, who showed up at the house just before 6 AM. Everyone was already up. The police were mostly looking for potential forced entry since they are asking about a ransom. Nothing was found. The family members were circling around, which may have caused some evidence to be destroyed. At 1 PM a detective arrived at the house. By this time it had been almost 7 hours since the police entered the house, and yet the house still had not been fully searched.
Detectives started searching the house to make sure nothing was missing. They started in the basement where they found JonBenét dead. Her dad picked her up and brought her upstairs, which destroyed a lot of evidence.
JonBenét died from a skull fracture. She was wrapped in a white blanket and with tape on her wrist and mouth. She also may have been sexually assaulted. They also found pineapple in JonBenét's stomach. This indicated that she had eaten before she was killed and therefore had to have been killed the night before, the night when the police were called. There was also a bowl found in the kitchen with Burke's fingerprints on it. It was the bowl where the pineapple was. This indicated that Burke knew JonBenét had pineapple or was even with her when she ate it. On JonBenét's body were also found two little marks. These marks were identical with Burke's new train set. He had to have somehow taken the track and thrown it at JonBenét or hit her with it.
When Patsy, JonBenét's mom, called 911 that morning, some voices were speaking in the background. It was probably Burke and their dad John. Patsy was talking about the note she found and JonBenét missing. Patsy also hung up first, which is not common. But she didn't really hang up. The connection between Patsy and the dispatch was still on and she heard all that they were talking about. One of boys said something, which is not clear and Patsy replied : ,,You did what?'' Then the connection failed. Now, remember that 118 000 USD? This is the exact number that Josh got as a holiday bonus from work. The note was also written by hand and a lot of specialists agreed that the hand writing is similar to Patsy's.
Lots of theories say that the family did it. Most of them believe that Patsy did not kill, but helped with destroying evidence. The real guilt is laid on either Burke or John. The fact that Burke was eating pineapple with Jonbenét and that she had those marks on her back may refer to Burke. They may have eaten pineapple and then they headed to the basement to play with the trains. Then, something happened. Later, dad may have helped Burke to do something with the body. Lot of sources refer to the fact that she was in a coma due to the skull fracture. Sadly, without any medical help, she died. It also may refer to Burke hitting her with something hard and she fell . Then her dad helped Burke to get rid of her. This theory is also possible due to the fact she was assaulted.
Another claims that it would be someone from outside. But there was no other DNA in the house except detectives and family members. Also there were no signs of any breaking into the house. Lot of people were suspects from the outside, but none of them were brought to trial due to not much evidence towards them.
No one was ever blamed for the murder of JonBenét, but most people are sure that the family is guilty.
